Did we ever think it would happen? “Do me a favor and call me Senator instead of ma’am,” Barbara Boxer, is leaving the United States Senate.
On January 19, 2012, Tom Del Beccaro, former Chairman of the California Republican Party, has announced his potential bid for Sen. Barbara Boxer’s (D-CA) seat in 2016.
“The retirement of Barbara Boxer provides California with the opportunity for new leadership. Our state needs a hopeful voice that will bring balance to our to our representation in Washington and favor economic prosperity for all Californians over economic directives from government,” said Del Beccaro. “California has the richest natural and human resources in the world. We shouldn’t be number one in poverty. We should be number one in prosperity. We can regain that prosperity by empowering individuals and fostering an environment for achievement.”
“Let’s talk to more Californians than ever before,” said Del Beccaro. “It’s time for the Republicans to truly go outside their comfort zone and bring their message to as many Californians as possible. By coming together for a common goal – prosperity – we can heal the growing divide in California between those struggling to make a living and those prospering.”
